This commentary, like all the Hippo commentaries, is divided into preaching units that contain detailed exposition of the passage as well as contemporary applications. The unit is not intended to be preached as a sermon, but provides material to be drawn on in sermon preparation. Each unit is followed by two or three questions that could be used for a small group or personal study. Academic issues relating to the Greek text and disputes about interpretation are dealt with in the extensive end notes. The book is thus suitable for use as a teaching resource for theological colleges and Bible schools while also being suited to readers who are looking for ways to preach and apply the Scriptures.
